NOBILITY by Pastor Paul Locke for loxland.com 21/04/2016 and YouTube
Noble means excellence with high moral values knowing right from wrong and being a friend of God. The responsibility of Nobles in our societies is to pursue justice for all without sinking into being friends of the world showing hatred towards God and becoming an enemy of God. (Jas 4:4) Self-righteousness is conferring on oneself a false status without obeying Spiritual Laws dictated to us by God. Righteousness comes by faith in the Blood of Jesus Christ. (Rom 3:25)
Virtue is tangible power of God and is transportable. The world becomes aware of the presence of virtue in a person by visible signs and mistakenly thinks that virtue is a state of that person. The woman with the issue of blood touched the hem of Jesus’ garment and virtue flowed out of him. (Lk 8:46) Jesus feeling this said, “Who touched me?” The gifts of the Holy Spirit collectively are the virtue and impartation along with the Holy Spirit is true baptism into faith. (Jhn 3:3-5)
Perseverance is a virtuous sign when believers stand in the faith even under duress. Your enemy the devil looks to take us down and we are to resist him and he will flee. (Jas 4:7) Spiritual warfare is opposing evil and standing on faith. (Eph 6:13) Untapped power of God is available to us who believe and speak the Word because it is written that the Word goes out and accomplishes and does not return void. Knowing the promises of God is our weapon against evil.
Noble Men and Women are described in the book of Proverbs revealing righteous traits of Nobility. Kinglike behaviour is to speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, judge fairly, and defend the rights of the poor and needy. (Prov 31:8-9) A wife of Noble character has many good traits but the final encouragement is that a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised and given the reward she has earned. (Prov 31:30-31)
Noble Politicians will not sell their soul to the devil for the love of money. (1Tm 6:10) History is their reward and a benefit to their heirs forever when their life of service can be praised. Evil people focus on their flesh and say, “Eat, drink and be merry.” (Lk 12:19-21) Pray for those who rely on science, that they may have revelation of the God of Creation and find the proofs of this written in the Bible.
